The FDA has the authority to require sponsors to perform a post-approval study (or studies) at the time of approval of a premarket approval (PMA), humanitarian device exemption (HDE), or product development protocol (PDP) application. Post-approval studies can provide patients, health care professionals, the device industry, the FDA and other stakeholders information on the continued safety and effectiveness (or continued probable benefit, in the case of an HDE) of approved medical devices. This database allows you to search Post-Approval Study information by applicant or device information.

Detailed Study Protocol Parameters
Study Design Description The study is a prospective, multicenter, non-randomized clinical evaluation of PAF patients treated with the radio frequency ablation with Thermocool catheters.
Study Population Description Study Population: Adult patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF).
Sample Size A minimum of 381 patients, 109 in the MEP group and 272 in the LEP group, enrolled at 40 sites. Since the endpoint is 7-day primary AE rate, it is anticipated that the attrition for this endpoint is minimum. In P030031/S085, it is indicated that a total of 407 subjects received RF ablation procedure with 125 in the MEP group and 282 in the LEP group. Of the 282 subjects in the LEP group, 76 remaining subjects who have not reached 5-year follow-up won’t be followed through 5 years.
Data Collection The primary safety endpoints include adverse events that occur within 7 days of an ablation procedure.
Follow-up Visits and Length of Follow-up Study participants will be followed for 5-years.
